For the 2021–2022 academic year, all students who do not qualify for an individual medical or religious exemption are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. With this policy in place, the College is conducting surveillance testing of unvaccinated students and diagnostic testing for symptomatic students. Kenyon publishes COVID-19 case data most Mondays, or more frequently as conditions require it.
